Who even knew the animated movie Animal Crackers existed? However, now that it’s been announced that Sir Ian McKellen, Danny DeVito, Sylvester Stallone, Patrick Warburton, Gilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné and Harvey Fierstein are all part of the voice cast, that’ll likely change big time. Then again, a movie about a magical box of animal crackers that turns people into the animal they eat may be a tough sell.
Hit the jump for more on the Animal Crackers casting announcement and to check out the first poster for the film as well. It doesn’t have a release date just yet, but is expected to be completed in the summer of 2016. Animal Crackers also features the voices of James Arnold Taylor, Tara Strong and Lydia Taylor.
This one comes from Scott Christian Sava and Blue Dream Studios. Here’s what Sava had to say about his voice cast:
“When I was writing ANIMAL CRACKERS I had specific voices in my head. Certain characters I wrote with actors in mind. Horatio was always Sir Ian McKellen. Brock was totally Patrick Warburton. Bullet-Man could be no one else but Stallone! To find out that each and every one of these actors have agreed to come on board this film and bring these characters to life … I’m flipping out.”
And here’s the official synopsis for Animal Crackers:
ANIMAL CRACKERS tells the story of a family whose life is turned upside down when they inherit a rundown circus and a mysterious box of Animal Crackers! The crackers, as it turns out, magically change the person who eats them into the animal they have eaten! Monkeys. Giraffes. Lions. Tigers… and Bears… OH MY!
